Reforestation of harvested areas commonly includes a mechanical or chemical treatment to preparing the ground before planting or seeding the next generation of trees. In this course we present site preparation options for various situations and then describe how a supervisor or operator can go about managing the quality and production of the site preparation project. The goal is to make choices that will provide a high regeneration success rate and keep the costs down. Material presented here is directed at those charged with supervising site preparation projects and those who operate site preparation equipment.
